8:02 am
welcome. we have a big show coming up today. and there's a show coming up tomorrow night that everyone is talking about. the premiere is back "mad men" tomorrow night. we'll speak with two of the show's stars about what's ahead this season. they left a lot of cliffhangers at the end of last season. >> a lot waiting for that. spring's eternal in duncan, oklahoma. they got married on a show called "brides and grooms" on cbs 60 years ago. they're still together. they'll be with us this morning so we can toast their diamond jubilee. >> and ask them how they did it, 60 years. what an accomplishment. we begin with a much more serious story. the growing outrage over the shooting death of trayvon martin. the nation's attention is focused on sanford, florida, north of orlando, where martin died almost one month ago. it is still making headlines across the country as we see in this morning's new york post.
8:03 am
president obama has made his own concerns very clear in very certainly terms, underscoring the national interest in this story. anna werner is in sanford with more. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. what began as a shoot agent this flex in florida, in a town many people had probably never heard of before, has become a cause for thousands, including the president. ♪ give my heart ♪ >> reporter: this prayer vigil in sanford friday night was the latest show of support for slain florida teen trayvon martin and the flames sparked by his death at the hands of a neighborhood watchman is engulfing the country. as many as 8,000 people gathered in philadelphia last night to march in memory of the unarmed 17-year-old who was shot to death last month. and in miami, 12,000 students walked out of school friday, some showing solidarity by forming trayvon's initials on
8:04 am
the school's football field. >> they're like our crutches, we're able to lean on the supporters and they're standing with us and they're going to stand with us till the end. >> reporter: president obama also weighed in on what he called a tragedy. >> if i had a son, he would look like trayvon. >> reporter: trayvon's parents believe he was murdered. george zimmerman, who admits he shot trayvon, told police he acted in self-defense. federal investigators now looking into the case have yet to interview zimmerman. he went into hiding due to death threats and hasn't spoken publicly but left this message yesterday for a fellow neighborhood watchman. >> they want to thank you for everything you've been doing. i know you don't have to. and i appreciate it. and you're truly setting an example for me for the future of just doing the right thing, even when it's tough. and i appreciate it.
8:05 am
>> reporter: well, this case has even gotten the attention of nba players lebron james from the miami heat posted a photo on his twitter account yesterday showing miami heat players in hoodies with their heads bowed in support of trayvon martin. several of them took the floor with sayings sprawled on their sneakers say, we want justice and r.i.p., trayvon. >> thank you, anna. joining us is the criminal defense lawyer who represents the shooter in this case, neighborhood watch volunteer george zimmerman, attorney craig is in orlando. good morning to you, craig, thank you for being with us. >> good morning. so, when did you take this case, craig? how long have you known george zimmerman? >> at this point i'm representing mr. zimmerman in an advisory type position. since there have not been formal charges filed, i can't really enter a notice of appearance
8:06 am
until -- >> when did you first make contact with zimmerman? >> the family made contact with me maybe a couple weeks ago, they called me and we discussed their case briefly. that's when the conversation started between us. >> and what are those conversations? what have been the discussions around the case? what has he told you about that night? >> well, actually today i'm not going to litigate the case on tv. there are facts that will come out as the investigation goes on. basically, mr. zimmerman was -- claims he was attacked by trayvon martin and he was defending himself. that's the gist of the case at this moment. >> some say in the police tapes, the 911 tapes, they can hear zimmerman using racial slurs in regards to trayvon martin. have you discussed those with him? and do you believe there's any racial motivation here?
8:07 am
>> i don't believe there's any racial motivation on the behalf of george zimmerman. i have spoken with him on that issue. that's the issue we wanted to address today, is that this was not a racial issue. in what happened that day. mr. zimmerman has been involved in his community and with people in the african-american community. he was -- he and his wife were mentors to -- single mother to two -- a 14-year-old son, a 13-year-old daughter. they were mentors to them. took them every couple weeks. what that program included every other week, going for two or three hours, going to the mall, to the science center, going to lunch, playing basketball, doing those types of things. >> making this strictly -- i just want to come back to one point, mr. sonner, because we're short on time here. but if this is strictly a self-defense scenario, as you are suggesting, how are you going to prove that it was self-defense with zimmerman
8:08 am
armed, carrying a gun, and this other individual, trayvon martin, carrying a pack of s. and ittles and an iced tea? >> again, i'm not going to litigate the case this morning. what i will tell you is i believe there is sufficient evidence to show that mr. zimmerman was acting in self-defense. he has injuries to his face, to the back of his head. and i think the evidence will show that he was acting in self-defense. and that it was not -- and that it was not racially motivated. >> is there anything that you would like to say to the family of trayvon martin? >> well, this is -- the end result of this entire situation is a tragic thing. my condolences for the loss of a child. i mean, there's nothing worse than the loss of a child. and my condolences to them. >> attorney craig sonner, thank you for being with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. the military has charged
8:09 am
robert bales with 17 counts of preed m premeditated murder. officials say it could be years before bales goes to whit johnson is in washington with more on bales' troubled past. >> reporter: court records show bales was in two separate drunken fights, one following alleged sexual misconduct with a woman. in 20 08 staff sergeant robert bales was described as extremely intoxicated when a woman claimed he thrust his hand toward her crotch and then fought with her boyfriend. he completed 20 hours of anger management after assaulting a security guard. military officials say bales was also drinking before the march 11th marssacre in which he allegedly killed 17 afghan civilians, including women and
8:10 am
children, and then burned some of their body. crimes in combination worthy of capital punishment. >> this crime is still under investigation. so, what we saw most recently was the first step in a long process. >> reporter: at the center of bales' case is whether combat stress turned a good soldier bad. bales' attorney says his client has no memory of the alleged killings. he served four tours, was injured twice and suffers from ptsd. >> we've been in this war for ten years. so, this is something we haven't seen before. >> reporter: but some military mental health experts say there is no proof that ptsd can lead to violent acts. it's not enough for a complete defense either, says retired navy lawyer phillip cave. >> the severity of his psychosis, the impacts, those will have to be factors that will be explored. >> bales is now under 24-hour watch at ft. leavenworth,
8:11 am
kansas. an evaluation will be under way to see if he's able to withstand trial. we turn to republican primary race. polls show santorum has a huge lead over mitt romney. to get the latest from chip reid in washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, rebecca. whatever happens today in louisiana, mitt romney supporters say he is so far ahead in the delegate race that he can't possibly lose to rick santorum. they're urging santorum to get out of the race. but santorum is ignoring that advice and campaigning like this race is his to win. rick santorum started the day with a bang in louisiana friday, a state where he leads in the polls by double digits. and in one new poll by a whopping 16 points, 43-27. even so, santorum spent much of the day on the defensive. >> over my dead body would i vote for barack obama.
8:12 am
>> reporter: a day earlier in texas he seemed to suggest he would prefer president obama over a candidate like mitt romney. >> i think it would be different might as well stay with what we ask instead of taking a risk of what may be the etch-a-sketch candidate for the future. >> reporter: he spent much of friday explaining what he had meant. >> i'll vote for whoever the republican nominee is, if i work for them. barack obama is a disaster. but we can't have someone who agrees with him on some of the biggest issues of the day. >> our next president, governor romney. >> reporter: while romney is trailing in louisiana he's riding a wave of momentum nationally after his big win in illinois tuesday. a gallup poll shows him leading santorum with his highest level yet of national support from republicans. determined to play the front-runner, romney kept his focus on president obama. on the second anniversary of health care reform. >> most americans want to get rid of it and we're among those americans. i want to get rid of it, too.
8:13 am
>> reporter: next week romney will do a west coast fund-raising swing. he's expected to start focusing more on the campaign against barack obama and raidsing money for that race instead of the day-to-day campaigning against rick santorum. >> chip reid in washington, thanks, chip. also in washington this morning is associate editor of "the hill" newspaper. good morning. we're talking about rick santorum still. it looks like if the polls are to be believed he'll put this out in louisiana. how much relevance does he still have left in this race as mitt romney seems more and more inevitable? >> not much. he was well on his way to really derailing mitt romney's path to nomination in february, but he did not score victories in michigan and ohio and illinois, states that would proven to the party that mitt romney simply couldn't cut it. because romney eked out victories there, a big one in illinois, you see santorum left with southern states that mitt
8:14 am
romney is likely as the gop nominee to win in the fall anyway. so, a victory in louisiana will be good for santorum. doesn't change the math at all. mitt romney still has a two to one delegate advantage over rick santorum, like the week before last, the week before last, the week before last, and next week as well. the math is pretty much over for rick santorum. wisconsin would be his last stand on april 3rd. he has plummeted in the polls there. i doubt he can win there and i think it will be over on april 3rd. >> you mentioned how important those southern states are. clearly when the general election comes around, that's so important. do you think romney will have a problem down south or does everything change when he becomes the nominee? >> well, what the republican party is hoping that everyone is so united in trying to beat president obama that mitt romney will have support of republicans everywhere, even in states that he lost. what they're concerned about is grass roots enthusiasm and energy, donations, volunteering,
8:15 am
peopling getting out on the ground, trying to help get the vote out, and that enthusiasm could cost him some votes. will he win against president obama? of course. they want to run up votes wherever they can. they're particularly concerned about independents, you know, as they face off against president obama, who continues to improve with them. as for the base, they really need to build excitement once he is officially the nominee to make sure the base is enthusiastic and not just voting for him. >> thanks so much. now we turn to the battle over the president's health care law. on monday oral arguments began before the supreme court where the nine justices will decide whether part of the law are unconstitutional or constitutional. people have already begun camping out there. hoping to catch a glimpse of this historic proceeding. jan crawford is in washington with what we can expect. good morning to you, jan. >> good morning, rebecca. what do you expect?
8:16 am
>> well, this is going to be -- when you hear all the people talking about these arguments, they use words like historic, landmark. like you said, people have already started lining up to get one of those prized seats inside the courtroom. as you know, no cameras in the courtroom. you don't have immediate audio, so the only way people can see these cases is to stand in line or be lucky enough to get a ticket. the reason that these cases are so closely watched is because of the sweep and scope, the impact they will have on every single person in this country. >> and they're so politically charged as well, jan, as you pointed out previously, and polls right now are showing that most americans, the majority of americans, are still opposed to the individual mandate within the health care law. and most people that are looking at this, the expert, yourself included in this, are saying the individual mandate is what this case is going to come down to. >> that's the ball game. that's what all the opposition always has centered around. you're going to hear these words, individual mandate thrown
8:17 am
around a lot. what that really means is can the government force you to buy health insurance? obviously, opponents say no, that's totally unconstitutional. congress has never done that in the history of our great nation, during war, the cold war. they've never forced us to buy wheat or war bonds going back to the beginning of our founding, so congress simply can't make you buy something that you don't want to buy. if they allow -- force to you buy insurance and the next thing you know, they'll be forcing us to buy broccoli and fuel efficient cars and all those other things that are supposed to be so good for us. but the government says, that's not true. health care is different. eventually everybody's got to buy health care. we want to go ahead and make it where it's efficient and where it works for everyone. you'll see those constitutional arguments, but what they mean is do all of us have to buy health insurance, even if we don't want it or will it bring a lot more millions and millions of people into health care coverage that don't already have it. these are huge issues, not only legally, politically, and also
8:18 am
practically for all of us. >> jan, we're short on time here. i want to ask you, without that individual mandate suggesting that everyone in this country under federal law has to own health insurance by 2014, can the policy work? can they get the scale to actually make health care country? >> this -- that's a great question. this is a huge law. there are lots of other issues and components. some have already taken effect. children under 26 have to be able to remain on their parents' insurance, even restaurants have to show nutritional information on menus. a whole different provisions like that. if the individual mandate falls and the concedes so many other things in the law will work, the fact that insurance companies cannot deny people coverage with preexisting conditions, you can't jack up your rates if you've been sick in the past. they won't work because they need to have everybody to participate in the insurance policy to afford the more
8:19 am
expensive coverage. so this is huge. >> thanks, jan crawford. let's turn to cbs news correspondent betty nguyen. >> good morning. don't we look spring-like today. >> we're ready for it. >> and it feels like it outside. good morning. a man is jailed this morning in sacramento, california, accused of trying to carry a gun through a security checkpoint. harold waler was arrested as he was about to board a usa airways flight to phoenix. authorities say he had four loaded guns and eight more weapons were found in his car. a new york city police detective will be fired, three others forced to resign in connection with the shooting death of an unarmed black man six years ago. sean bell was killed following his bachelor party in 2006. the white officers said they thought bell was armed. three detectives were tried in the shooting and acquitted. pope benedict is in mexico this morning. his first visit to that country. tens of thousands of the
8:20 am
faithful greeted the pope yesterday when he arrived for a three-day visit. they say he brings a message of peace to a nation ravaged by deadly drug violence. he's expected to speak about the blood shed when he celebrates in outdoor mass tomorrow. imagine this, waking up one morning to find a car in your swimming pool. look at that. that's exactly what happened to a homeowner in vancouver, washington. this happened yesterday morning. during the night, a guy somehow drove his car off the road, through a fence and right into the swimming pool. now, the driver was taken to a hospital. the car had to be, as you see right there, lifted out of the water by a crane. i've had some pretty interesting weekends. nothing like that, thankfully. >> well, you know, hey, i woke up with a couple lampshades on my head. never the pool. let me talk to you about this picture i have behind me. this is the beautiful west side of new york city. here we -- right here is the
8:21 am
boat house. a great looking shot. let's get to the weather headline. after all, it's the first weekend of spring. it's really been summer-like in the northeast. augusta, maine, last week had temperatures in the 80s. this week you'll have temperatures in the 40s. it's all because of a low pressure system you can see spinning right here. it will spin in cooler air, cloud cover and some rain for the northeast. speaking of rain, you know, it's springtime you think, flooding concerns but the national weather service says 80% of the country will be below normal or normal in terms of flooding concerns because we have not had the snow and the soil is not saturated. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekends. and i hope you have a great
8:22 am
saturday. guys, over to you. >> thank you so much, lonnie. this is one you'll like because you've been reading the series, unless you've been in a deep cave or another planet you know the "hunger games" opened in movie theaters nationwide friday. it's broken a lot of records at the box office already. >> and the hollywood reporter is saying it's on track to make $140 to $150 million just this weekend, making it one of the ten biggest movie opens ever. brian rooney looks at the "hunger games" frenzy. >> reporter: the draw for a young audience is a story about surviving the trials of adolescence. actually, surviving them. >> 24 and only one come out. >> reporter: based on a popular trio of books, the "hunger games" is a world in which teenagers have drafted into a fight to the finish survival game. >> two, one -- >> reporter: talk about teenage
8:23 am
angst, the no nonsense girl who hits the prime target for making money. >> amazing. >> reporter: opening numbers put it in a league with "harry potter" and vampires of twilight. >> word of mouth used to be something that took days to happen. with facebook and twitter, it happens instantaneously. the good news for the "hunger games" is all the social networking seems to be positive. >> the crush at the box office is not the only if he nphenomenn created this crazy. archery, crowds are building at ranges and the archery industry report a 20% rise in equipment sales in the last year. much of the sport's growing popularity, attributed tributed to a teenage girl now killing the competition, at the box

beautiful saturday morning. welcome to "cbs this morning saturday," i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm ben tracy. a documentary on bullying, you'll meet the director and the girl who's trying to lower the rating. >> we'll take a pop quiz to see if we know the right ways to get our minds and bodies in shape now that the warm weather is here. also, the robot, president obama's nominee to head the world bank. why he's rapping is just one of our stories "behind the headlines". we're looking forward to that. first, our top story this half hour. the death of 17-year-old trayvon
8:31 am
martin has renewed the long national debate on race relations in america. despite having an african-american president and attorney general, relations between police and minorities appear to be as strained as ever. black parents are asking if their kids will ever live in an america where justice is truly color blind. >> joining us now to talk about this is reverend calvin budde, pastor here in new york, and president of state university, and former mayor of baltimore. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> thank you. >> the one thing i was thinking about when we were talking about this is we hear the phrase post-racial america used a lot. is that just a red her ring? do we actually live in a post-racial america? >> we live in a america that's better off racially than it was, shall we say, when i was born. we've seen a number of significant changes, including the election of a president who is african-american.
8:32 am
but that does not take away the serious race problem that we in this nation. >> i want to talk about -- we were talking this morning about the talk african-american parents have with their children about how to act, how to behave. and a quote from jonathan capehart in "the washington post" struck me. he said, these are some of the rules he talks about. don't run in public. don't run while carrying anything in your hands. don't talk back to the police. i'm curious, is this a very common thing that all african-american parents have this talk with their children? >> well, i don't know if all, but certainly most do. i know i did with my son. in addition to being former mayor, i was also a prosecutor. i was chief prosecutor in baltimore. and i understand that there are certain rules that you have to talk to your children about. but, you know, in this particular case, i found that whites and blacks are achieving
8:33 am
common ground. when you don't think about the race of either zimmerman or trayvon martin, if you just think to yourself, what would you say to your son as he's walking home -- to your home and somebody is following him in a car, a stranger gets out of the car with a weapon, and approaches him. do you tell your child, go talk to this individual? or do you tell them to walk away or try to find safety? and when people think about it in those terms, they understand that trayvon should have continued. this was not a police officer. this was an armed stranger. so, you know, when we think about it in those terms, i believe we can come to some common understanding that trayvon had no duty to stop to talk to zimmerman. and zimmerman clearly went way beyond what the law requires. >> reverend butts, dean brings up an interesting point. this situation could be way the
8:34 am
racial issues, could be a situation that a lot of people could find common ground and a common appreciation for, it being maybe not a good thing, a bad thing, a very bad thing. when you look at the situation and the fact that it has been painted with a racial brush, do you think that is a positive or a negative for race relations going forward? >> i think it's a reality. and i think it's going to be both positive and negative. it's stirring up a lot of racial tension. but that stirring up of the racial tension will help us to drill down more on the issue of race. the president says it could have been his son. he's speaking as a parent and also a person of appear cof afr descent. moreover, this is a question of how concerned americans are of our personal security. this is not isolated. we have ramali graham in new
8:35 am
york where a district attorney is doing nothing. where mayor is very quiet. where police commissioner has said nothing. and this is a question of a police officer bargeing into a home without any warrant and shooting an individual in their own bathroom. we have some serious problems this case will help us to drill down on, and race is just one of them. >> just a few seconds here. but i'm curious, we talk about the that african-american parents are having with their kids. what can white parents talk to their kids about to combat stereotypes that seem to persist? >> i think they need to sit down and talk about the racial history in this nation. i think they ought to talk more about our common humanity. these are the things, for example, that drchltd ki. king to bring us together on. since then there's been a terrible trend in our nation to push apart on racial issues.
8:36 am
i think it's about keeping the masters divided. if you can use the hopes of race to keep poor people separated, there's always a group that sits up top raking in all the profits. that's a reality. >> dean, what do you think about that? >> well, it's certainly my hope now that the governor in florida and the florida legislature will listen to the chiefs of police in the major cities in florida. the chiefs of police argued strenuously against adopting this law that zimmerman is now using for self-defense. they said it was going to lead to these kind of tragedies. there's an opportunity now to repeal these laws, to go back to traditional self-defense laws and hopefully that will prevent these types of tragedies occurring in the future. >> it's a tough topic but an important one. thank you for being here. now we turn to lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. >> good morning to you.
8:37 am
want want to get to the picture over my holder. if you've been to central park in new york city, you know what this is. that's the carousel. a cool looking shot right there. let me give you my weather headline because it will be 10 to 20 degrees cooler in the northeast today. meanwhile, 10 to 20 degrees warmer in the plains. it's all due to the same low pressure system. it's leaving one area and it's entering another. it's leaving the plain states. you'll see the sunshine there. beautiful day on tap for you. meanwhile, here's the spin. it's pushing into the northeast. it's going to be sort of rainy and raw out there. take a look here. i'm talking from boston down to richmo richmond. you'll catch the rainy weather, the cooler temperature. meanwhile, the plain states, i mean, lincoln, witch witch, ft. smith, looking at temperature of 20 to 30 degrees above normal for this time of year. that's a quick look at the national picture. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.

8:41 am
♪ a new documentary on bullying opens on friday. it's already creating some
8:42 am
controversy. it's call "bully" and follows five kids and their families. >> the teacher was calling roll and said boys and then he said girls and paused and said, kelby. >> the movie has been given an "r" rating, sparking an online petition to get the rating lowered to pg-13 so more kids can see it. joining us is lee hurst who directed the documentary and katie butler which started the campaign which has more than 450,000 signatures. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> lee, i watched this film last night. i have to say, it was troubling as well as moving. why do you think more kids knee to see this and knee to have access to it? >> yeah, i think that millions of kids are dealing with bullying day in and day out. not only here but abroad. so, the access to this film belongs to kids. this story was made not only for
8:43 am
them but for them in a way. it's sort of -- i mean, you and understand that in a way and speak to that, but we really think kids ought to see the film because it's for them. >> what about the argument of kids ought to see the film, they could see it with their parents, with an "r" rating on it. do you agree with that from watching it, as a child, i could see having the conversation with my parents and getting something out of that krvrgs because we saw the film together. >> a lot of parents said, thank you for this film because i can go with my kid and i'll have an opportunity or framework to have a very difficult conversation that i've never really known how to broach before. but a lot of kids have also written us and said, my parents will never -- would never in a million years take me to see this film. not only because it's rated "r" but because they wouldn't have the time or they would choose to see something much more action or comedy with their one night
8:44 am
off. you can't trust parents will make that choice. also, you may not want to get with your parents, right? >> absolutely. >> katie, you launched this online petition that's gotten an amazing response. why was it so important for you to get involved in this? >> i started my position on change.org to change the rating because when i was in middle school i was bullied for being openly gay. when i saw this new movie was coming out, i thought it had such a great message and was so powerful and could change the climate of bullying in the united states. having that "r" rating makes it really hard for kids to see it and really, really hard for it to be shown in schools and i want to make sure all of the kids can see it and all of the schools can show it. >> how awesome is katie. 500,000 people have signed this thing. >> viewers will say, if the sticking point is profanity, why not take some of it out so it can reach a wider audience? >> well, we talked about this.
8:45 am
what does that language hold for you? what is the meaning of it? >> i mean, that language is the language kids use in school every day, that's the language they use to bullying me. everyone hears me. they don't go to school and edit it out. it weakens the message. >> words have power. if you're telling a true story about bullying, that actually matters because what we're trying to do is establish what it looks like, what it feels like, what it looks like to walk in the shoes of someone that goes through this. if you cut that out, if you minimize that, it's one more act of society going, kids will be kids, it's not that bad. i think what we're trying to do is honor actually what really happens to katie, what happened to me and i was bullied and other kids. >> it's an important film. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> awe om. thank you. coming up next, we take a look at fact or fiction. ben and i will be taking a spring quiz to see what we

9:02 am
tensions between the black community and the sanford police department here go back ten years. also the head of the seminole county naacp said there was very little trust or confidence from the black community when you talk about the police department. there have been other incidents, too, that people have questioned in the police department's handling of other cases that involves family members of other officers. when you look at that context, it seems the questions are not going to go away soon here about racial motivations and racial tensions still do exist here. >> absolutely. and it will continue to stay in the national spotlight, too. thank you, anna, we appreciate it. we turn to cbs news correspondent and morning news anchor, betty nguyen. >> good morning to you. president obama is traveling to seoul, south korea, this morning for a three-day meeting with world leaders on preventing nuclear terrorism. mr. obama has described nuclear terrorism as the greatest threat

9:07 am
something the jets witnessed last season when tebow ran for a 20-yard game-winning touchdown with under a minute remaining. his success in denver, along with his public displays of faith, have built tebow a cult following. >> i'm a tebow fan. i go where he goes. >> reporter: it's an open question how tebow will play under the microscope of new york. both as a backup quarterback to mark sanchez and as a proth la tiesing evangelical christian. >> maybe he's really going to sign shine. >> reporter: we asked new yorker ann priest, father edward beck. >> a lot of sensibility in new york. i think it's going to be a nice antithesis to the perception of new york, what people think about new york, to have tebow in our midst. >> reporter: the bright lights of new york could make tebow an even bigger star. like jets quarterback joe namath, known as broadway joe, whose brash style made him a cultural icon and marketing superstar.
9:08 am
to see if tebow becomes broadway tim, we'll have to see how this story plays out. for "cbs this morning saturday," seth doane in new york. >> joining us is will leetch, founder of the sports blog deadspin.com and sports columnist for "new york" magazine. >> and professor of marketing at columbia university who's worked for the new york knicks and the philadelphia 76ers. great to have you with us. >> thanks, guys. >> thanks. >> joe namath has come out and said this is a publicity stunt but the question is, it going to pay off for tebow? >> it can. i think everyone has to remember he was very savvy before he won two national championships at florida, heisman trophy. he has chances. he had a jockey deal before he came here. >> and jockey's already put up a billboard as a result of this announcement. what do you think? >> it's still different.
9:09 am
certainly tebow is popular and been -- it's still different here. you know what i mean? jeremy lin within three days there was a kardashian rumor. in a lot of ways it's different. it's a different spotlight. it's strange, too, because he was starting in denver and won't necessarily be starting here. certainly it will be strange in a lot of ways to have the most popular recognizable player on the jets' backup quarterback get a few sflaps a game. >> this is the biggest media market in the world. how do you think the whole aspect of his faith, which is what everyone talks about, how do you think that will play in new york verse how it played in denver? >> there's a perception. there's a lot of church here. this is not -- i think he'll embrace. frankly, there was a lot of talk of whether he had the decision to come here or jacksonville. i think he's embraced it because this is a whiter state. this something he's always been prepared of. this is something he believes. this is not something he's fake about. he loves to have as many people
9:10 am
see it as possible. >> do you think awe the attention will push him more onto the field than if he wasn't already in the spotlight? >> no. i think it will -- he has to play very well in the role that the jets are going to assign to him. what that role is, we'll find out. everybody's got to remember, they have an outstanding can quarterback and a marketable guy, mark sanchez, ahead of him already and it's come out he'll be the starting quarterback. if tebow can fit into that role and do very well, there are marketing opportunities he can handle. on the religious side, it's a tremendous stage for him. >> how do you think this will affect the team dynamic if you have the backup quarterback being so pop larp even with sanchez name in the front? we talked about it beforehand, but the jets have brought in some figures in the last year that brings in another mix to the locker room. the nfl is all about chemistry. they have to come together in the locker room and that will translate into the business side as well. >> the major issue is, you know, tebow, everyone is when is tebow going to be in? the minute sanchez throws an interception, okay, bring in
9:11 am
tebow. i think that's going to be an issue for the jets every game this year. >> on some levels, it keeps the excitement there and keeps fans coming to the game. it may behoov the jets not to play him to keep that spark alive. >> from a marketing standpoint, the yet have their thanks. appreciate it. coming up next, two stars from the hit amc show "mad men" talk about the big premiere tomorrow night [ lech ] acid erosion is a growing problem.

so, we'll see if that story line picks up again. >> i have a feeling it will. >> i will say is that if you look at -- after you've seen the whole season, you go back and watch the two-hour premiere again, everything that happens unfolds in the season is there in that first two hours. all the building blocks for everything that happens is right there in that two hours. >> so, watch it carefully. >> or come back the at the end of the season and watch it again. >> thanks so much, guys. we really appreciate it. >> thank you. remember, the fifth season of "mad men" premieres tomorrow night on amc. coming up next, a couple married 60 years ago right here on cbs and their incredible love story next. >> announcer: this morning's coffee segment sponsored by subway restaurants. the official training restaurant of michael phelps.

9:34 am
attractive woman, what happens is you go from using the prefrontal cortex to using more primitive parts of the brain that actually start to trigger arousal. so, a guy will, you know, maybe start to sweat a little, his heart rate will go up, his respiration, his pulse will increase, so there are physiological changes but it's not getting stupid. in some ways, it can get you smarter. it can get you primed. it can get you a little exhilarated and excited and even potentially a little focused. >> is this just women you're attracted to or women in general, is there something biological there? >> ask him. i think this study is crap. i'll tell you why -- i'm sick of studies that have these gender stereotypes that we have to fit into. people are individuals. this study in particular, it was 71 people. by the way, they don't report ethnicity, what am i going to assume? everyone is white? 71, white college students in the netherlands. i don't think americans function
9:35 am
